International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 126

($230) Good deep ruby. High-pitched nose dominated by black cherry. Dense and sweet but with a light touch. Distinctly minerally, sharply delineated wine that nonetheless seems less dense than the 2004 example. Still quite youthfully tight and firmly tannic, with an almost medicinal austerity. Today I don't find the liqueur-like sweetness this wine displayed from barrel, but this conveys an impression of brooding power and will require following.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 207

The 2003 St. Eden comes from an 11-acre rocky knoll on the northern side of the Oakville Crossroad that consists of pure red soils. It is the most evolved and forward of these 2003 Bond wines. Lots of cedar, chocolate, roasted herb, lavender and spice box notes emerge from this complex Pauillac-like effort. Medium to full-bodied and fully mature, it is more evolved than its siblings, revealing sweet tannin as well as a spicy, earthy finish. Owners are advised to drink it over the next decade.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Superrich and concentrated, with tiers of currant, blackberry and wild berry fruit that's plush, pushing ripeness to the edge. Yet maintains its balance, and for those who enjoy a rich, high-extract style, this works. To be released Spring 2007. 725 cases made.
